By Duane WH Arnold, PhD (Indiana, USA):
“Those who have Mons. Romero as a friend in the faith, who invoke him as protector and intercessor, who admire his image, find in him strength and courage to build the Kingdom of God, and to commit to a more equitable and dignified social order. “
This is the phrase that was greeted with applause when read at the Beatification.
“There is a great celebration in heaven.” “Romero is joyful because he sees us gathered togther.” “He helps us to live this dream of reconciliation.” “Give your lives for each other and for the poor.” “Only love and not violence can change the world.” “If we feel with Romero, El Salvador and the world will change.”
